It is such an ideal setting - day trips to the Cliffs of Moher, Killarney, the Burren, or the Dingle Peninsula or a shorter day exploring the smaller quaint towns of Terryglass (on Lough Derg) and then Killaloe (on the river Shannon) both a short 15-20 minute drive and the castles in Birr and Limerick about a 40 minute drive. The M-7 (major highway) is only minutes away which cut the long day trips travel time easily by half. Vist the local Pubs for Pub-Grub ie. the Whiskey Still in Dromineer, the Thatched Cottage in Ballycommon and Larkins Pub in nearby Garrkennedy. These pubs also specialise in irish music where one can dance or indeed relax and chat the locals. Nenagh is a quaint and friendly town and just walking through the town and having coffee/tea and a ‘sweet’ in The Pantry, Country Choice or Quigley’s Bakery or visiting the butcher at Hanlons to buy wonderful local meats are all a treat.
We love having guests to stay, sharing life at our cottage, who will enjoy our friendship and a lovely place to stay.

About Jeanette Seymour
As a family living and working on a rural farm, we built this wonderful cottage which is next door (100yds) to our family home. The location of this site is so scenic and as a family we enjoy the local amenities of Lough Derg and enjoy visitors to this area.

You will not be disappointed with the local area as it is strategically located with many fantastic villages and towns nearby e.g. Terryglass, Ballycommon, Dromineer, Portumna, Nenagh to name but a few.

Jeanette and Stephen are amazing people that make you feel like family.
When we return to Ireland they are definitely our first choice for accommodations. The house is a modern four bedroom three bath home with everything you will need. The setting is as gorgeous as Ireland can be. I highly recommend this venue.
A perfect home in an ideal location for as many or few outings you would like.
There were six of us for this vacation, but the 'cottage' is so substantial that we had more room than we could have hoped for. The rural setting of the cottage is idyllic and had us looking forward to returning there after each outing. Based upon the location, we felt we were within striking distance of any point of interest.
A grocery store and several fine eating establishments are ten minutes or less away.
Jeanette our host was very helpful, not at all intrusive, and a pleasure to meet. Thank you for making our first trip to Ireland such a memorable one.
2 years in a row!
This is our 2nd stay at this cottage. We love it! It's perfect for a large family or friends traveling together. It's beautiful inside and out. It's a perfect location if you want to travel around the southern half of Ireland. Highly recommend this cottage! We will be back!
Really great House
Six Adults and 2 Children had a really lovely time in Girt na gCapaill. The house was beautifully presented and decorated for Christmas. We had plenty of space and the kids and adults really enjoyed the games room with pool table. There were plenty of chill out spaces for everyone. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough and OPW to return again.
Home from home in a stunning location, near many places to visit (see below) with excellent transport links. Gort na gCapall Cottage packs a lot in for the price. With only a few minor changes this would be a high-end 5 star property. We loved everything about the cottage....especially the pool table (some nail biting tournaments!) and upstairs area which contained a large breakout lounge (big screen TV with stacks of channels) alongside a more private large en-suite master bedroom. Downstairs there is a large bathroom with standalone bath and three further sizeable bedrooms (double, double en-suite and twin). Large kitchen and dining area with a more intimate lounge area and real fire (with a near limitless supply of lovely Irish peat to burn!). Lovely double-glazed sash windows downstairs and skylights upstairs. First class heating made the cottage feel very snug despite its large size. Utility room came in very handy to keep on top of the washing and drying. Outside the cottage the scenery is breathtaking- open farmland for miles (although the nearest town Nenagh is only a 10 minute drive away). Places visited nearby: Dromineer (1 mile away by huge lake, nice local pub), Nenagh (good for shopping/ cafe's), Portumna Forest Park and Workhouse (very moving), Bunratty Castle and Folk Park (live Irish Music in a mocked up village!) Cliffs of Moher, Doolin, Rock of Cashel, Cahir Park and Castle, Mitchelstown Caves, Glen of Aherlow and further afield the cities of Limerick, Cork and Dublin. Lastly a word about the owners who live nearby and were very welcoming throughout, including keeping us regularly updated throughout the booking process. Faultless. Whole booking process has been super-easy. Very highly recommended indeed.
Great house well equipped lovely location
The house was lovely warm and welcoming.
It is a real home away from home. Great lay out with two sitting rooms to give the adults some space from the kids. Nice walks in the local area no need to drive to walk. Would recommend to all
